CLINICALLY INTEGRATED FOR EFFICIENCY AND BETTER CARE
BVCN ACO is a clinically integrated network, meaning our providers share
goals for quality, value and health outcomes. As a result, they:
Enhance Your Care Coordination
BVCN ACO breaks down silos by bringing providers together to coordinate
your care and help you stay as healthy as possible. We give your providers
access to the most up-to-date patient health information, clinical guidelines,
resources and tools. When needed, we connect your primary provider to
other physicians with specialized skill sets who all work together to
enhance your care.
Identify Those Whose Health Might Be at Risk
BVCN ACO data analysis identifies patients who might be at risk from chronic
health conditions and could benefit from coordinated care. Through a cooperative
effort, our providers then share their expertise and identify resources
to develop a care plan to help keep that patient healthy and avoid emergency
department visits and hospital admissions.
Deliver Better Access to Care
Rather than building a competitive system between physicians, we help patients
find the medical providers closest to them who can best meet their medical
needs. In turn, our providers can collaborate with each other when a patient’s
care requires a multi-disciplinary skill set.
Reduce Health Care Costs
Our enhanced care coordination increases efficiencies and helps achieve
better health outcomes — all while bending the health care cost
curve. By supporting providers with robust, actionable information, as
well as pooling resources and expertise, we help reduce duplicate tests,
unnecessary interventions, emergency department visits and hospital readmissions.
Improve Health Outcomes
BVCN ACO’s providers collaborate to meet quality measures linked
to high-quality health care such as health outcomes and patient perceptions.
We are committed to supporting providers as they work to reach identified
health outcomes. As a result, we have earned financial rewards for meeting
or exceeding quality benchmarks.
